Introduce young children to Jewish life with Very First Board Books.
Crack the eggs. Hear the sound?
Make this braided challah round.
Rosh Hashanah is coming.
This sweet board book celebrates the Jewish New Year, and is the fourth in Tracy Newman's Jewish holiday series. As Kirkus said of Shabbat is Coming!, a previous book in this series, ". . . the bouncy verse and Garofoli's richly colored, slightly three-dimensional cartoons against canvas-textured background provide a compelling introduction to the weekly celebration."
"Garofoli's crisp-edged, canvas-textured artwork creates an inviting domestic backdrop for the festivities, while leaving the door open for adults to discuss the holiday in greater detail as they read." -- Publisher's Weekly
"Newman's simple, rhymed couplets describe each scene with economy and are punctuated with the repeated refrain, 'Rosh Hashanah is coming.' Garofoli's jewel-toned art, which looks as though she created it using a computer, is pleasingly animated and accessible. A simple and joyous introduction to an important holiday."--Kirkus Reviews
